Material Resource Planning
Record and track raw material requirements.
Material Resource Planning made for metal fabrication and profile cutting.
Most fabricators have stringer requirements regarding the total traceability of parts and materials. Hence the importance of employing the help of tools like RanFab to assist and control the material flow. From the point of purchase to inventory and actual allocation to jobs and orders, it’s all built into our software.
The steps required to achieve this complete control are so intuitive that they seem invisible to the outsider. It falls into place by simply following the suggested workflow between the inventory requirements, purchasing and material allocations. The result is complete traceability, where any user can identify which material was used for which job down to the heat number from the supplier’s delivery docket.
The added plus also comes from the significant savings achieved in the level of inventory that needs to be carried at any point in time, as this will be reduced to the absolute minimum without disrupting the production schedules. In some cases, we had reports of bottom-line improvements for workshops of up to 30% based on the savings that the MRP package brought in.
